david petraeus and on that note, here is piers morgan tonight. >>> starting with breaking news tonight, you are looking at capitol hill where david petraeus is to testify in front of the senate committee. meanwhile, we are learning more about the agent who was the first to be identified to have started this. he said that the infamous shirtless picture he sent to her was a joke and several years ago. and now we will listen to what the president has to say about the argument over susan rice. >> if senator graham and senator mccain want to go after somebody, they should go after me, and i'm happy to have that discussion, but for them to gof a u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and simply making a prez sentation information she had receive and to besmirch her reputation is outrageo outrageous. >> if the president thinks that we are pick on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. >> the benghazi battle turning into a hot issue. i will talk to one of the senators taking the president to task, kelly ayotte. but we will begin with the latest on
. we begin with break news, nbc news learned that general david petraeus has volunteered to appear before the senate intelligence committee on capitol hill tomorrow for a closed hearing. these new developments coming just two hours away from president obama's first news conference since his re-election victory. a moment when an incumbent about to be sworn in for a second term would be expected to outline his goals and agenda but it's likely to be dominated by headlines surrounding two of the nation's highest ranking military general, petraeus and general john allen. let's refresh the details. general john allen is denying any and all allegations of an extramarital affair and any other wrongdoing. his nomination as commander of nato remains on hold but continues to lead in afghanistan. the white house expressing confidence in his ability to do so yesterday echoed by two members of the president's cabinet today. >> no one should leap to any conclusions. no one should leap to any conclusions here. general allen is doing an excellent job. >> general allen is a distinguished marine and
department did. that's the kind of question they're going to ask david petraeus. but here is the problem with bengha benghazi. it was a huge cia base. and what were they doing down there? were they simply buying up arms off the local market, surface to air missiles? even some are arguing that this attack on september 11th had something to do with an arms deal that went bad and there are rumor that is possibly this cia unit or somebody down there was buy i buying arms to send to syria. i frankly discount them all. i see no evidence of it. somebody has to give us the answers. this is why this controversy is carried on so long because there's absolutely no clarity. we, as americans, want to know why four american diplomats were killed. >> let's specifically -- there is word that the people on the ground in benghazi, libya, cried out for help and help did not come. >> i think it's clear that the ambassador, who was murdered, did express doubts to washington about the security. there was no backup. the problem is, if there was a seven-hour gun battle for that consulate, that's not fast enough

of the united states along with the head of the fbi were investigating david petraeus for six months and the president didn't know about it? that's going to be a very interesting and hard-hitting question to put before the president then when petraeus goes before congress to discuss benghazi, i imagine some of these questions might come up again and people will try to get them in some type of cross fire amongst each other and there will be plenty of blame to go around no doubt but finally we are done focusing on nonsensical issues around the election, small issues, we're going to begin to focus on big issues like the fiscal cliff but what happened in benghazi to take four americans' lives? that's important. a lot want to know about it and in the next coming days we'll be sitting on the edge of our seat waiting for the answer. >> people want to know about that but as we look at this, this cast of character that's merged from the petraeus situation including petraeus, general allen, jill kelley, paula broadwell, we are a war-weary nation but these men have overseen our troops, allen se
breaking news. we're getting new information about what then-cia director david petraeus knew about the benghazi attack and when he knew it. let's get right to our pentagon correspondent barbara starr. barbara, what are you learning? >> wolf, i have just spoken to someone, a long-standing source who has spoken to david petraeus. this is someone on his level professionally. this person is directly familiar from petraeus with his thinking, with petraeus' thinking about what he will tell congress tomorrow about the benghazi attacks. david petraeus wants to tell congress that he knew almost immediately after the september 11th attacks that the group ansar al sharia, that al qaeda sympathizing group in libya was responsible for the attacks. here's how it goes. in petraeus' view there are two questions on the table. who was responsible? and that is ansar al sharia. he has intelligence he believes to back that up. second question, what was their motivation? that is where some of the confusion may lie. what this source says petraeus told him is there were about 20 intelligence reports that
you think that general allen and david petraeus' reputations are salvageable? should they hire a crisis communications expert? >> they may want to. reputations are fragile thing. as a lot of folks can tell you especially those who have been in the spotlight. the next few weeks will sort of -- how they handle themselves will tell the tale. i've counseled my clients on issues like this. never underestimate the capacity of the public to forgive but you have to ask for it. you have to be contrite and open and you know, this -- this is a situation with jill kelley, with broadwell and general allen, so many moving parts you've got to get all of the pieces right so you can get your story out there. and tell it in a way that you know, will make the public forgive you. >> jennifer: so does the fact then that jill kelley actually hired a reputation fixer judy smith, does that fact tell you that she's potentially in a lot of trouble and there is -- there are some other shoes that might drop? >> well, it tells me she's clearly
in the david petraeus sex scandal. house and senate leaders want to know why they were never given the heads up on the investigation that led petraeus to resign as a cia director over an extramarital affair. with that resignation, petraeus might not have to testify this week at a congressional hearing on the benghazi consulate attack. cnn's barbara starr is following that story from the pentagon. good morning. >> good morning, soledad. well, look, at least at this point, there's no indication publicly of a national security breach. but that doesn't mean the questions aren't growing. lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are questioning the timing behind the revelation. house majority leader eric cantor said an fbi employee told him in october about the petraeus affair. by that time an fbi investigation was already under way. the fbi told the director of national intelligence james clapper on election night, according to a senior u.s. intelligence official. the white house says it was notified the day after the election, and the president the following day. that doesn't make sense to house homela
/gaza border, thank. >>> david petraeus will testify after all about the attack in benghazi. when he resigned last week, he withdrew from a congressional hearing. now the ex-cia director has agreed to meet behind closed doors with the senate committee some time soon and the house committee tomorrow. new york republican congressman peter king is on that house committee and joins me now by phone. and mr. chairman, what are you going to ask him when he appears before you on friday? what could he tell you, you don't know already? >> i would think the main thing i would ask him is, first of all, you know, listen to what he says, as to what he now believes happened in benghazi, and ask him to square that with what he told us on friday, september 13th, three days after attack, when he basically dismissed any possibility that it was a terrorist attack. clearly said that it was caused by the video that was spontaneous and it was somehow connected to what happened in egypt. and he was basically dismissing any thought of it having any al qaeda connection. i would ask him how he reached that conclusion o
. >> there are so many facets to this. tomorrow, david petraeus is going to testify or talk to leaders of the senate and house intelligence committees about the attacks in benghazi. this is a closed-door session, though, barbara. do you have any idea what's going to be discussed? >> well, we are told indeed closed door petraeus wanted to voluntarily come and talk to them about what he knew, you know, nobody is saying what it is that he's actually going to say. but we've talked to some people close to petraeus and the indications are he's going to try and explain this whole issue that dan was talking about. when they thought it was a terrorist attack, what they knew about it, who they thought might be responsible and whether or not that whole situation? cairo at the time about the demonstration over an anti-islamic film may have played a role. you had a very murky situation, john. >> barbara starr at the pentagon this morning. thanks very much. >>> 11 minutes past the hour. coming up, how the president will pay personal attention to the victims of sandy. that's scheduled to happen just hours from now
that ended the career of former cia director david petraeus. while the resignation was announced right before petraeus was scheduled to testify about the terror attack in benghazi, the fbi knew about this affair back in august. so did the white house know, and when? ambassador john bolton is on deck. >>> and we've lost the america that president reagan used to describe. a lot of folks are asking the question. the last election sliced and diced america into voter groups pitted against each other, so the question is now whether the shining city on a hill is hopelessly divideed. michael reagan joins us ahead. >> the '90s, and some things have changed. younger parents aren't sure that an unambivalent appreciation of america is the right thing to teach modern children. and as for those who create the popular culture, well-grounded patriotism is no longer the style. our spirit is back, but we haven't reinstitutionalized it. we've got to do a better job of getting across that america is freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise and freedom is special and rare. shannon: t
